  • To be perfectly honest, there's no one person who writes journals here on use.perl that is _so_ compelling that I'd actually make a point of reading their own site.

    However, the fact that there are _lots_ of people who write journals, all in one convenient location, gets me to read quite a number of journal entries. Some I read because I know them in other contexts, like Matts here, who I worked with for a while.

    Others I've met in conferences or seen their talks or they just write well enough to make it worth reading.

    But for me the compelling part of the journals here is the gestalt. It's great to have the comments and sometimes a thread starts in one journal and someone writes a journal entry in response and so on.

    All of which is to say that it's the community as a whole that I enjoy rather than any single member's contribution to it. I do wish Elaine and others would come back, because I enjoyed reading their responses.

    But there's exactly _one_ blog outside of use.perl I read on a regular basis, and that one is maintained by one of my closest friends. She's really busy (single motherhood is _incredibly_ difficult) so I don't get to hang out with her all that often so the blog is a good way to catch up, basically  ;)
